Safe to use a drill battery with a 12 volt motor

Hello everyone!
I think I mentioned in my last post that I am building an underwater ROV. It’s going great, and I just need one more thing: a battery.
I was wondering if it was safe/functional to use a 12v drill battery. I am using motors rated at 12v just FYI. Super close to getting this done and excited. If any of you robotics geniuses out there know, than thank you!


Hello @henry_bot!

You have to take into account other things besides the nominal voltage, for example: the capacity and discharge rate. If you need more information about this I recommend checking this tutorial:

Good luck with your project :grinning:
